The service is great and the property has lovely pink church that the family converted into a museum filled with large antique Catholic relics and statues used to this day when... More

It was a hot day. Kids loved the carabao pulling the cart. There is someone serenading you as you take in the historic old buildings. It looked like a plantation turned resort. The highlight is the lunch is served at the waterfalls where you eat filipino foods and soak your feet. It was a different kind of experience. Not for... More

We got the day trip package (1400 pesos) it came with buffet at the waterfall restaurant, carabao cart ride, cultural show and museum tour. If you want, you can try raft rowing. It's worth the drive and price. The experience in waterfall restaurant would definitely be the highlight of the day.

So expensive. Even my Kid who is 10 has to pay full rate around 1,200 pesos for Lunch Rafting and cultural show. He didn't eat a lot. The food is only pancit, chicken and inihaw na Tilapia. My son slipped on the rocks while getting his food.

It's a quiet place where you can just sit in the veranda of the cottage and read my favorite book , overlooking the lake. I like to local food, the carabao ride and the local scenary. I feel so close to the nature.

Great venue for a day trip - there is the museum and old plantations grounds to explore. Highlights for me was lunch in the lagoon at the bottom of the (man made) waterfall - food was great and it was a novelty to eat in the water - plus the rafting along the lagoon and Filipino cultural show at the...

From the moment you step into Villa Escudero, expect nothing less than stellar customer service. Filipinos are known to be hospitable, and the staff of Villa Escudero is a wonderful testament to this. The tour starts with a welcome drink, and a warm receptionist guiding you through the day's activities. This is followed by a carabao ride (which I was... More

Villa Escudero tour is a throwback to the hacienda era in the Philippines. There is a church, a museum and a wide expanse of greeneries. A carabao ride will welcome guests and lunch (a nice Pinoy-themed) is served in their manmade falls (actually used to be a mini dam or water reservoir). In the afternoon, there are cultural shows and... More

We used Shore 2 Shore travels to arrange this trip. Bring a change of clothes if you plan on taking a dip in the waterfall. Lunch is a buffet service but because we used Shore 2 Shore for our trip the waiters bought food to our table which saved us having to queue up. We took a tour around the... More
